Wait for it. BOOM, that’s a F-22 breaking the sound barrier. At “America’s Air Show,” come to see impressive military airplanes including the F-22 and the CV-22 Osprey, both on the ground and in the air, where they execute precise aerial maneuvers in perfect formation. The Air show is a history lesson in the glory that is U.S. Air Force. Besides the latest aviation from the U.S. Military there are also displays. Performances by civilian pilots fill in the fun. The Air Show is hosted at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, Nevada, annually.
